Feedback / Re: chuckles' Trading Feedback

I trade with Jim so darn often, I can't even remember leaving feedback.  I might well owe him more, so this is a good place for it.  

First class trader, great packer and the other half of my Minnesota connection that keeps me sane (I know, debatable).

I just cannot wait for these figures to come out.  Too bad they'll never make it into any stores around where I live.

Jeez, that makes you sound like a Canuck.  Where else is distribution that bad?

Heh.  Heh heh.  

I like Fett and all but geez, hard luck character.  Cool in ESB but loser in ROTJ.  

He's goin' down baby! ;D

Nice job though, a great addition to a great line.

I like it, but then it must be a snow thing ;)

I'll buy as many as I can get my hands on.  Probably go screaming off to the McFarlane board and trade variants for snowtroopers if I can.

I like Windu's saber.  Of course, at the moment I'm talking about the plastic cheapies but...

Any word on price?  Back to normal I presume?

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Release Date
« on: May 9, 2003, 11:06 PM »
I read in Toyfare that the Clone Wars cartoon consists of 20 - 3 minute episodes (=1 hour) that will be run in the gaps between shows.  Has anybody else heard this?

Conventions / Re: Wizard World in Chicago
« on: May 9, 2003, 10:55 PM »
Ad I saw in Toyfare today mentions Hasbro and Star Wars as being at the Chicago show.  Stikfas, GI Joe and something I can't remember.  

This sort of stuff doesn't happen in Canada :(

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The frustrations of home buying...
« on: May 9, 2003, 10:49 PM »
Heh, we have a four bedroom house.  When my Mom was alive, she and my dad used to come back to Winnipeg more frequently than just my dad does now.  The fourth bedroom is in a lower level (it's a four level split) with a bathroom right beside - almost an in-law suite.  

Since it hardly ever gets used, my wife decided (yes, it was her decision) to let me convert it to the computer/Star Wars room ;D

I just need to stop buying crap long enough to be able to afford some shelving ::)  Didn't help that I ordered some Tomy stuff today. :P

Y'know, if you reopen bidding on Patty, I bet I'd win.  Thinking of moving to Utah anyway....

That poster is just hanging there waiting for a bet....

Aw, I'm just messing with ya.  My daughter just turned 3, she just finished second molars, is in a new "big-girl" bed and wakes up in the middle of the night and comes to our room.  Every night.  I can relate.  

I've almost resigned myself to never having a normal night's sleep again.  

As regards the NHL, I thought they were in trouble as soon as they grabbed Bettman.  Look at all the non-traditional markets.  This ain't baseball or basketball where a kid can get a pickup game going with a minimum of equipment.  Sorry, but North Carolina, Florida and the rest of California just aren't hockey hotbeds.  LA has always supported the Kings to some degree.  

You can relate because you were without a team for a while after the Stars (nee North Stars) left.  Imagine how frustrating it is as a guy that used to go to 10 games a year (as a student yet) and watch Carolina average realistically about 4500 fans per game.  Even when the Jets set the record for futility in a season (longest winless streak ever), we still averaged about 12000 fans per game in a horrible building.  That jumped to about 13500 when they were playing well.  I'd have seasons if they were still here.  

No offense to the great hockey fans in the US, but much more so than baseball or basketball, the NHL is simply not meant to be in the US to the extent it is.  The average US viewer gets less excited about hockey than they do bowling.  Keep it in the US where it belongs, bring it back to Canada where it needs to be (Winnipeg, Hamilton, Quebec City) and leave it alone.  The impending strike/lockout of next year is going to be ugly and devastating.
